Welcome back to Morrowlife! Here’s a nice little house on top of a hill in Virginia. We visited it a few years ago. It turns out somebody important lived there at one time. Very inventive fellow. He had a pretty good place there.

It was a relatively eventful weekend. We got the garage project pretty much done. The ‘Burb fits much better now, thank you. We can actually get into that side of the garage.

The Japanese drummers were, umm, interesting. They really pound on those drums. They played some original compositions. They sounded like, “Dum dum dum dum-de-dum dum dum,” as opposed to the old traditional Japanese drum music, which sounded like, “Dum dum-de-dum dum dum.” Big difference. My head still hurts. Still, I’m glad we went. Loyal Readers Numbers One and Two got up at the end and did a little drum pounding themselves. They sounded great.

Let’s see, what else? We pretty much spent Saturday evening quietly at home. Very nice. LRN2 invited a friend over for the night, so we heated up the spa and hung out in the backyard for an hour or so before bedtime. I sure like that spa. Sadly, the pool was just too cold for swimming. Other than for LRN2. He hopped right in and enjoyed it. That boy can certainly handle some cold water.

Called my mom (unfortunately not a Loyal Reader) for her birthday on Saturday. It was nice chatting with her. She had fun at Disneyworld, just in case you’re wondering. She didn’t have a stroke there either, so that was good.

Sunday I felt a little sick again. I’m getting discouraged about that. Kept a low profile and hung around the house all day. I did get a few things done, though – I taught Larry the Computer how to write CD-ROMs and erase CD-RWs, taught Curly the Mac how to write SVCDs, and taught Mark the Computer (currently in Linux mode) how to play nicely with Java (although there’s still a problem running Runescape, so M the C still has a little bit to learn). I also wrote a big, long article on RV battery reconditioning for the HRVA. It’s been well-received by my harshest critic (LRN1), so that’s gratifying. The website is willing but the content is weak. Have a look anyway, and how about signing up? I need more members. When I changed over to Drupal, all my users got unregistered, so please sign up again if you haven’t already. If you have already signed up, thanks. Tell a friend. I’ll try to get those stickers going Real Soon Now.

Rode the train to work today, so I’m writing this on the way home. No Wifi, of course. We got there about 15 minutes late today – the train was very slow leaving the Lathrop station. After we had sat there for several minutes, they announced there was a medical emergency at the front of the train and asked if there was a doctor or nurse onboard. I don’t know if they got one, but an ambulance and fire truck arrived a few minutes later. We waited a little longer and then left. I wonder what happened and hope it wasn’t too serious. We’ll probably be another 15 minutes late this afternoon due to conflict with an off-schedule Amtrak train and a broken signal. I don’t like that.

I checked out a book on robot building on Saturday, not expecting too much. It turns out to be quite interesting – enough so, in fact, that I’ve added it to the book club way over there on the right. I’ll let you know more about it when it’s all over.

Fortunately, I have the robot book here in the train, and it’s time to quit writing and start reading. See you tomorrow.
